clyde (laughter) but june was our worse most of the year so far for gun violence. homicide by gun is down dramatically. homicides are down 50 percent but as the commissioner says right now after we're going through it's not the time to celebrate. overall we need to find our peace again then we'll talk about it later. it's not quiet in bay view or the south eastern section of the city >> commissioner. >> you know chief i think commissioner is right. the breath of knowledge and experience that our officers
1:01 pm
need to have to do their job is incredible. i think the end of june to where we are at this point in july really do demonstrate that. in a wonderful way they have dealt with a celebration to a tragedy and they've all done so with the spirit of putting public safety first and being responsive to the public needs. i want to thank evidentially for all their work this past few weeks. one of the things i do want to call tension to around the pride celebration there are some negative things that happened in the community such as a couple of shootings that i thought our
1:02 pm
officers responder to well. there was some gun activity where a large number of arrests were made. and the evening of pride our officers responded to the needs of the community in an "x" player fashion. some of the things our officers need to improve on but i was proud to be associated with san francisco police department on pride sunday. because in hearing and being part of the commission and certainly holding public hearings on different matters the criticism is heard as well as the praise but i really enjoy that i got to interact with the
1:03 pm
public and what i heard was very positive megabit how happy people were with the job that san francisco police officers were doing in many aspects. the lgbt community have this negative history with police officers all over the country. there are people k0u78 u coming up to me because i got to ride with the san francisco police officers contingent in the parade and praised the work we've done in many areas. our pride alliance officers the lgbt officers that are part of this department are really respected in our community and certainly there are things we
1:04 pm
need to work on and we can improve but we've made some leaps and bounds in certain areas of the community. it couldn't have been more highlighted when i walked in the festival and a woman cape to me and said i didn't trust the police but i feel much satisfactory and i can approach them now. this really went a long ways with me. i want to thank you and the officers who are really i think working hard to connect with our community and be the socialu you're talking about. and really improve on our relationship with the community so, please pass that on for everyone >> and for the record julian

had his own car in the pride he was the bell of the ball. >> commissioner khan. >> i second the commissioners comments about the breath of experience that the officers have had to have. that was about the horrible plane crash. i flew out on friday and came back on monday. it was shocking i was praying for the folks that were on that plane and hoping the body count was low. it's upsetting to know that the 16-year-old girls from china have passed away but the fact that the officers jumped in that plane with short sleeve shirts on they saved hundreds of lives
1:06 pm
it could have been a lot worse. so thanks for those officers. and if you know me, too well, you have is a plane coming from aboard in shang had any and came here so i was wondering how the department and the fire department handled ail the language needs it is guarantee to know you got a lot of help. it's good to know that after the crash you helped to get the folks in touch with each other. so thanks for the brave officers i'm looking forward to honoring them >> i think it's important to know that office cunningham noticed cell phones on the seats and he had the presence of mind to scoop i am the cell phones

1:08 pm
acknowledge the instructors who facilitate this program and that concludes my report. >> before we move on i have to say the san francisco police department has a history of being one that has a lot of firs. when you're a police officer in the men and women in blue who you are in your personal life it's is one that accepts people when i hear of the lgbt folks we have the first open gay officer sgt. frank and this was decades ago. that's where it starts. the cleave gets a lot of credit he anyway's it's an acceptable department and one of the things i'm proud about is their way
